Have you been around here long enough to remember how short my little part of Open Thread used to be? Was it better for you not to have to scroll through my weekly updates and get right to the point of our all-weekend-long, cathartic, chatterbox life-sharing party?
Well, I'm reverting to that somewhat this week and am not going to take up space with random questions* or reporting on our XOish weeks. If you've been here before, you know this thread is all about you and your lives and anything that floats into your head or is stuck in your brain.
If you're new to this Open Thread thing, this weekly one has about the lowest bar to entry (is that the expression?) of anything you could find anywhere on- or offline. Say "hi." Say "first!!!!" Talk about a problem you're having or tell how your plants or pets are growing or anything. It really doesn't matter.
The outpouring of love and support you will get back is not to be found anywhere else in the world, so try it. You deserve it.
*If you feel sad about the lack of random questions, here's a couple things I want to know: what was the most cringeworthy (in your opinion) part of the GOP debate? And: have your sunsets been particularly amazing lately too and why is that? And one more: what's the strangest thing you've ever seen (for sale or otherwise) in a convenience store?
